Citrix Workspace Citrix Virtual Desktops Unification

Citrix Workspace is becoming a central, unified, highly secure space for everything a Citrix end user needs to work.

If you haven’t already heard, “Citrix Workspace is becoming one unified, contextual, secure offering. Citrix Workspace offers a user-centric experience where everything you need to work is in one unified app, with access and performance made simple, based on user context and IT-designed conditions,” according to Citrix.com. Paving the way for the future of digital transformation, Citrix is at the forefront creating a more secure, data-loss-preventative environment strategically designed to facilitate higher employee productivity with amazing efficiencies. A business technology solution, Citrix Workspace aggregates apps and data across all applications, onsite or in the Cloud, giving its users instant access to SaaS and web apps, files, mobile apples, virtual apps, and desktops all in one easy-to-use interface. With one sign-in for all access, Cloud app control, ease of new device onboarding, BYOD simplification, centralized file access, web risk security, and more … it’s no wonder why Citrix Workspace is all the buzz!

Citrix Virtual Desktop and Citrix Virtual Apps; Virtual Management for securely delivering apps, desktops, and data anywhere, on any device

XenApp and XenDesktop are Citrix virtual management solutions that securely deliver apps (Windows, Linux, web, SaaS, etc.) and desktops from any cloud – public, onsite, or hybrid. This gives end users the freedom to work remotely and securely from anywhere, helping to also cut IT costs, while providing a complete virtual app & desktop solution to meet all of your business and end user needs. XenApp and XenDesktop are part of Citrix Workspace and fall under the Citrix Portfolio unification and naming convention “rebranding.” So, take note of the below:
